Dubai: Dubai Police have arrested a drug tycoon who was wanted by UK for eight years for his role in drug trafficking in the Kingdom.

Michael Paul Moogan, 35, from Croxteth, Liverpool, who featured as part of the Operation Captura most wanted fugitives campaign, was apprehended in Dubai as a result of joint working between Dubai Police and the National Crime Agency (NCA).

Moogan had been on the run since a raid that took place at a café in Rotterdam, suspected of being used as a front for meetings between drug traffickers, cartels, and central to a plot to bring hundreds of kilograms of cocaine into the UK every week.

Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said the arrest came shortly after receiving a red notice from the Interpol.
